BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,1ST OCT 2018-Opposition leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto have once again set stage for political war among them with each one daring the other.This came a just a day after Ruto claimed Opposition chief had a hatched a plan have him kicked out of the ruling Jubilee Party, the NASA leader has come out to state he is not interested in his post or any other in government.
Speaking when he opened Katani Hospital in Machakos County, Odinga said certain leaders were panicking as a result of war against corruption which had registered high profile causalities across all sectors of society.
“The fight on corruption is what is causing jitters, that is why some people are making so much noise, they have panicked. But I have often said that you have no reason to be afraid if you know you have not done anything wrong.”
“You don’t have to be afraid of Raila, I don’t want anybody’s position, I have the best interest of Kenyans at heart,” he said.
On the other hand , Ruto who is on a tour of the Coast asked the Opposition to stop pretending to be the ones spearheading the fight against corruption.
“The Constitution is clear; we have independent institutions charged with the fight against corruption, resources wastage and mismanagement,” he said.
He said if the leaders in the Opposition have no agenda for Kenya, then they do not need to politicise the fight against corruption.
“Importantly, leaders should focus on discussing issues that would transform Kenya rather than wasting time talking about others,” he said.
“Our politics is development focused. Our main agenda is to empower all Kenyans economically. We are not like those other greedy politicians who waste their time to talk about others,” he said while addressing the public at Taita Taveta County during the launch of the Voi Modern Market.
The deputy president also said he will not be intimidated by the opposition,adding that his agenda and that of president Kenyatta was to ensure the country achieved its development goals.
